Abstract: This report provides the content analysis protocol and tabulated data results used to inform the associated report ‘Natural hazards: RMA plan analysis to manage existing use rights and implementation of the New Zealand Coastal Policy Statement 2010’ (GNS Science Report 2015/30). The purpose of the analysis was to assess how existing use rights are provided for in plans; and how natural hazard provisions in the New Zealand Coastal Policy Statement 2010 (NZCPS) have been given effect to in operative Regional Policy Statements (RPSs), regional plans and regional coastal plans, and in district plans. A total of 99 plans were assessed for their management of existing use rights, and 84 plans for their coastal objectives, policies and rules. While only those districts with coastal boundaries were coded for specific coastal policies, all plans were coded for existing use rights. (auth)
